Blogger's Quilt Festival
Here is my quilt for the Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by Amy. It is the latest quilt that I have finished. Tammy did the quilting for me.I have named it Red, White and Blue. It was made for some family friends who have a baby boy. The wife is American and the husband is Canadian. I liked the idea of combining the colours of the 2 countries into one quilt.
The quilt is special because it is one of the first quilts I started after I started my blog in March. Originally it was going to be a rail fence quilt, but then I found Amanda Jean's zigzag tutorial and decided to do that instead. Since then, I have used my fellow quilting bloggers for much inspiration. I have met many friends from all different countries and have been in awe of what people create. I have participated in 7 swaps, and am now working on my 8th swap. Many of my quilts have been altered or changed completely from all of the inspiration you have provided me. It was also one of the first quilts where I used most of the fabric from my stash. This quilt is a reminder of all the friendship, support and help I have been given.
Thank you all!
